I know I haven’t been posting a lot, but here’s an update on some of my projects:

  • PHP EMS Tools - I’ve done quite a bit of work for the ambulance corps, and intend on rolling this into the main distribution. I’ve also added an Asterisk/AGI module to handle crew call-ins. It’s going to be a long road, as I have to manually diff the ambulance corps version to the trunk version and merge the changes (leaving out anything specific to our organization), but I plan on doing it. The next version will also include historical tracking of roster information (member information, status, positions, committees, etc.) and LDAP integration for authentication.
  • PHPsa - My new project, tentatively called PHPsa, is an integrated dashboard for sysadmins. The idea is to develop a plugin-based portal for SA tools. Currently, I will be including some of my own projects - MultiBindAdmin (a tool to administer BIND and DHCPd, specifically geared towards split-view DNS with the inside behind NAT) and RackMan (a tool to track and visualize the location of devices within racks, including ability to temporarily move devices around) - as well as my updates to Nathan Hubbard’s MachDB.

I’ve also done quite a bit of customization of the current version of Nathan Hubbard’s MachDB. It adds detailed network interface information, information on expansion slots, and some extra details for the system and storage. I plan on developing a patch and contacting Nathan once I get a chance. It also includes a Python collector script that I developed.
